After awhile shecaraein with a "You lakkee China candy?" began Ling before she could say anything "Heap good!" and he shoved a queer little box -full of kenng toward her. '1 lakkee you." he continued, while he picked at the gilt buttons on his blouse. "1 bling you nice close, heap nice,' J'ot: eabe? Makkee you nice close, you dless heap nice, sabe? You mally ine, you hah heap money." "Marry you, John? Well, I guess not! Me old woman would pull the pigtail out of your head if she heard you makin any breaks like that." "You mally ine bimeby," said Ling, as though lie felt sure he would win. "So long, John!" she said, ns she went out munching the candy. That was the first of the queer courtship. It struct: Maggie seriously, as though she thought she might do worse. "1 don't know but what I'll marry the Chink," she said to herself. "I'll get all ther clothes an money I want an I'll be boss, you can betl" There was a cat which used to sleep under Ling's counter. She grew fat on the scraps of chow chop suey and chue ynnk which fell from the table, and altogether lived a life of peace. But the day Ling proposed to Maggie Sullivan the cat's manner changed. Instead ot sleeping under the counter all the day she took to walking on the counter, mewing uneasily in a wailing voice which filled the room with a distressful sound. Then she would pause in her walk, and sitting on her haunches glare at Ling with staring eyes. Once or twice he drove her away, but she came back and glared until her eyes turned from green to purple. Once he struck her with his bamboo t'ung, and she retreated to a high shelf and watched him. "The evil one possesses her," said Ling, and he burned more prayer sticks before his kashat Joss, but the wailing of the cat uever ceased. She crept umlei Ling's bed that night and scratched at the matting ou the floor: she paraded the little room, and her big shining eyes seemed to light up tha dark place. From that night the cat was never at rest, and Ling became so stricken with a silent terror that he \vnuM go out into the street rather than cross her path. Hi- forgot about tin- cat a couple (if days later, when Maggie Sullivan came in. She was better dressed than usual. "Hello.

The opium had,brought a peaceful i feeWng, ,but he Mras rather stupid. Maggie sat' 6n the edge of the bunk arid the cat walked across the room with stately tread, glaring at her. She paused at her feet, and at tine'bound was on her lap. "Hello, pussy!" she said, putting her facedown and stroking the fur. Like a flash a paw shbt out; five hooked, sharp clawa were unsheathed and dragged across-.the girl's cheek. She gave a frightened scream, and when Ling looked he saw three red lines down her face, from which blood waa dripping. And the cat walked slowly across the floor with the same stately tread. "I've got a nice looking face now!" said Maggie, "and 1 think I'll have that cat killed." "Less," said Ling, "kill hlim," and he rose dreamily and tried to drive the cat out, but she wouldn't go. He gave it up and cursed the spirit which possessed tho cat. "Some enemy of mine has died," he thought, "and his soul has gone into tho cat." Maggie washed the blood from her face and put on three long strips of plaster, and then went around to the Five Points mission, wh-ere they were married. The minister, Mr. Boughton, asked them both a great many questions, and satisfied himself that everything was all right. Before he dismissed them he said he hoped Maggie would be happy, "1 hope so, sir," said she, "an they say the Chinks are good to their wim- men." They went back to the store then. There was a letter on the counter near the scales. It had come from China and was for Yee Sam Ling. The cat sat near it and would not move. Ling pushed her away with a stick, but she came back. He was afraid to put his hand out fcr the letter, so he pulled it toward him with his pipe. It was from his native town. "Your good mother is dead," it said; "the scourge devil carried her away. It was her will that you return and marry the girl she has betrothed to you." The letter fell from Ling's bauds; he looked up and saw the cat still staring at him. "My mother's soul is there to curse me," he whispered to himself, backing toward the door. "It is she! She has come across the big water because 1 did not return." and he kept stepping backward. "The curse has come upon me!" And ho felt for his cue. Then he looked at Maggie and saw tho marks of the claws With a shriek he opened the door and rushed out!

Yon got to be as white ns clothes can kin make you, an you got to treat me white, too, or I'll shake you!" Ling didn't want to lose his cue ami he fought against what he considered a sacrilege, but he found Maggie relentless. "1 curl him up so," he said, as tie twisted it about his head; " 'n I puttee on lilat, so." and he pulled an old slouch hat down over his head, " n' noblody sice hlim, haV" No. even that wouldn't do, and Maggie went away saying: "I'm goin up to a lady friends o' mine ter stay teniite, John, an I'll see you tomovrer, an if ther pigtail don't go I don't git married, see'.'" Ling didn't quite see, but he thought a lot. He thought Maggie was the prettiest girl he had ever seen. There was nothing cii'an about her. She had (hie blue eyes, a trim figure and a shock of golden hair that attracted tho China man. The old cat jumped on the counter and yowled and stared at him, and he went out to got away from those green eyes. He went to the Joss house and burned thirty cents worth of prayer sticks and piyier. Hi; made up his mind quickly after that, almost ran down the dark, creaking steps and across the way to where the tai'-tuu'-lo lived and did business. ••Take off this thing!" hewiid, when he sat dawn on the stool in front of thu little razors and Hcisnors. « ••What!" said the barber, "are you crazy, or have the. foreign devils got you too?' ••(Jut it oil', 1 tell you!

"Ha, ha!" laughed the Kwang-tun man, "you are going to be one of us; p.ud!" and lie [ticked up a big pair o f-l.ears. Snip! and Ling's cue was gone -jut dose to his head. Out Ling ran, U-aving his cue behind him. He went into his store and sat down to think, when up jumped tho cat. Her eyes were yellow this time, and she howled mouru fully. ••(.;-.-t away, you evil thing!" and be pushed her oft' with a stick. He did not .-K'i'p that night; he dreamed stran. things and saw strange sights; hi' thought of his homo in fur oil China. shim- i and liis mother and the little Chines ".John's gone plurnb crazy!" said Maggin to the attendant. "It's th« opium, 1 guess. It knocks 'em all when they get the habit." Ling never came back, so Maggie patched a truce with her mother and went back to the tenement. Nobody but the minister knows she is Mrs. Yw Sam Ling, and the new sign which swings over the door of the little store tells every one who looks up at it that Sun Quong sells Chinese groceries there.

He lay in his cubby brink and smoked the opium until he, heard a voice. It sounded as if it came from a great distance. It oaid: "Hello, where's the boss? MiornV all right!"' The curtains were pulled back uud Maggie Sullivan came in. "Hittiu ther pipe, chV Well, that's bad for the blood. How's yer pigtail?" "1 cut Wim. He filoue." said Liug Stupidly. Oysters Are u Luxury in England. We do not exactly long for the Port Lincoln oyster of south Australia, which sometimes measures a foot across, and which, fried in bread crumbs and butter, is as much as an ablebodied man can consume at a sitting. Fortunately oysters are found in every sea except, perhaps, the Baltic, for some2,000,000.000 are eaten annually in Europe alone. It is interesting to hear of "oyster gardens' near Sydney, where you go to bathe talcing a towel ami an oyster knife, with a loaf and butter, where you deposi your clothes, and may eat as many oys ters as you can open for a shilling. There is no doubt that the oyster thu freshly taken from the bed may be tasted in the greatest perfection. Traveling disagrees with his liver, which is among tho largest and most important organs and keeping him in ice deteriorates th flavor, as it does that of all fish. Th somewhat melancholy conclusion of the whole matter is that oysters are palatable, wholesome, nourishing—and expensive—and that a great many beds will have been laid down before they can be anything to ua but a luxury or a medicine. They are recommended as "sovran" against the influenza, and calculated to keep old people alive when all other food fails: but we may long in vain for days when a cookery book began its receipts with "Take a lumdivd and (it'ty oysters," or "Take of oysters two quarts." But, as they say in a neighboring island, "the best way to cook an oyster is to eat him raw." — Satr.rdav Review. Why .Siio V»'usn't Afruiu. The fresh air children KUO the country with their own eyes, not with yours or mine. They steadily refuse to gratify thu taste of and exacting persons by becoming morbidly lost in marvel, or rapt in poetic fancy.

Very strange and wondurful everything is to them, to he sure; but in a land where everything is strange and wonderful one loses sight of special mar- AT THE LUMBERMAN'S CAMP. who has b^en married for twenty years to a superior woman. Dear reader, were you ever married to one of those—a woman who was your superior in every way and kept the fact at the head of the column next to pure reading matter? This reminds me somehow of Mr. Wilde. If i could have seen Willie in time I would have told him never to marry a stiperior woman, even though she should "throw open to him the door to every avenue of literary success." as his wife did. 1 knew a man ouce who married a superior woman and he died in a madhouse, and the visitor is still shown the marks on his little iron bedstead where he bit it while thinking of his past life. The falls of Niagara are grand and beautiful, besides having a worldwide reputation; so are the Brooklyn bridge and the national debt, but 1 would not care, even if footloose (which i am not), to marry either ono of them. But let us return. We have been for days in the lumber region, i. e., the pinal column of it. At every little sta- ,ion we are joined by lumbermen, most- y foreigners, wearing the picturesque costumes of the camp. Wo saw the Berry Wall of the pine region yesterday. 3e wore a new buckskin shirt, fluted at the seams, and a pair of woolen janties or over-underwear knitted from ;he worsted remnants of a big yarn carnival, 1 judged. They were the most lurid trousers 1 ever saw. Wherever he went you could almost seem to smell something burning. It was a woolen kaleideseope which reminded one of a picture of a volcanic eruption executed by an intemperate . wagon painter. Underneath the clothes I have named above he had all the other clothes he had ever owned since he grew up. This gave him a choked and suffocating appearance, and gave rise to the remark, in the Scandinavian dialect: "1 gort too many pantses on. Dat's be- corse 1 svet so/' The lumberman carries a valise made of a two bushel grain bag fastened together by a top and bottom corner so that he can sling it over bis shoulder. In this, I think, he has a pair of heavy kip boots, some edible tobacco and a large bottle of alcohol. Sometimes the prosperous chopper has a square, black papier mache valise with a toy lock ou it. Yesterday two men got on the train at the same time. One of them was a Canuck and tho otJier was a Norwegian. The Canuck had one of these little black bags with the-tin lock on it which is so. exactly like several thousand other little black valises peculiar to the railroad. Hole on dar, you Frautsiuans!" said tho Norsku man. "You gort my sassle dar!" No, sare," said tho gentleman from San Pierre; "it is eemposseble." By that time both men had bold of the hamlle. They talked broken English back and forth for some time. Then the Norwegian said. "Vort you gort in yours sassier 1 " the Frenchman told of a few things, such as hair oil, uoarhound candy, comb, brush, snowrihoes, etc. The Norsko told what he hail, and in the meantime they pulloti hard on the bug and tho train gut ;i good start. As we crossed a Vrestlo they were both appalled and put to confusion, for tho bag burst open and down through tho trestle there fell a porous plaster and a big iiat bottle of something that thawed great holer:, in the ice wherever it struck, The bag. it seems, did not belong to either of tht-m. i spent tv/o weeks in u lumber camp once by advice of my physiciaus. They said 1 needed pure air and a good deal statement. 1 met a man yesterday who looked like Ignatius Donnelly. 1 am told that it was Donnelly. He said that senators ought to be chosen by the popular vote. Orchestra seats in the senate are too high now, he said, considering the character of the entertainment. He said we ought to be more careful, too, in the manner of inviting men to fill important offices. Out in Leadvtlle there was an elderly German whom we will call Mr. Frankfurter, for that wa« not the name of our hero. He was concerned with Mr. Tabor at the time the big strike was made which turned them into millionaires. One evening Mr. Frankfurter was prowling around the same old lager beet place where he loved to linger before his prosperity. He was talking with Colonel Yowler, of Buckskin. "By the way, Frankfurter," says Yowler, "are you going to the big ban- ket?" He always called it "banket." "Vot banket?" says Frankfurter. "Why, the banket up to Tabor's. All the great men of Colorado will be there, and all of the gentlemen of Leadville." "Py kolly, is dot posseaible? 1 get no inwite for dot banket." "Why, you are a partner of Tabor's, ain't you?" "Yaw, 1 vtwstill a pardner, but Tabor lie has pegoolier notions about dose tings. Ho inwites no one but cheutlo- mens. But look hare. Colonel Yowler, some day 1 vill get me my rewcnge on Tabor. 1 will give already a big expensive banket myself, and 1 won't inwite a chentleman— not :x gentleman! You are all right, colonel.
